yes i say so and that is what my topic has been from the begining...

as far has crime levels goiing up or down it depends on how you measure it...

there are more murders every year. but if you go per capita it dropings.....
like i said before you can make a stat say whatever you want it to....
however if there are 5000 murders last year and 5500 this year murders have increased...
yet by using population increases you can make it look like its droping....
just 2 years ago the media was involved in a story how state and federal agencies were making crime levels look as though they were droping.
But you have to "go per capita." That's not manipulating anything, that's collecting pertinent data and presenting a more accurate portrayal in a proper context.

It would be like saying minimum wage workers in 1960 only made $1.00 but today they make over $5.00 an hour and argue how that's so much better.

Crime Rate From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Crime rate is a measure of the rate of occurrence of crimes committed in a given area and time. Most commonly, crime rate is given as the number of crimes committed among a given number of persons. Often, the type of crime is exactly specified. Thus, a crime rate might be given as the number of murders (or rapes, thefts, etc.) per 100,000 persons per year within a city.

Pretty much.

It sure would be something to see total crime numbers go down while adding 60 million in population. I mean really something, like monkeys flying outta my *** something.

Here is a picture of nine smiling white people from a better time to help you feel better.
Funnily enough, of those 9

The top left (Marcia) became addicted to a variety of drugs and recieved treatment for it multiple times. The bottom left (Cindy) was involved in a pornographic film. And bottom right (Bobby) became a Grateful Dead "Deadhead" and was later arrested for a DWI.

Also bottom middle, the "dad" "Mike", is gay. Not that there is anything wrong or "thuggish" about that, I just feel compelled to throw that fun fact in there. It adds a whole new level of entertainment to rewatching old Brady bunch episodes.

United States Crime Rates 1960 - 2006

http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/uscrime.htm

shows crime stats are on the rise.
Wow! That is interesting. Over the 46 years detailed in your link, data shows an overall increase in the crime rate in every category, with some crime rates jumping 200, 300, 400%. I didn't know that.

According to the FBI, you are also correct about the rising (violent) crime rate of late which is what I interpreted as your point re the original post. Violent crimes were up in 2005 and again in 2006 to a level near that of 2002. I don't know what the data is for 2007. I don't think it comes out until Summer or Fall of 2008. Hopefully, it will be down. However, if the data for 2007 and 2008 show a rise similar to that of 2005 and 2006, that would give us a violent crime rate higher than it has been in 10 years. :covermyeyes:

Either way, be careful out there.

Violent Crime, a Sticky Issue for White House, Shows Steeper Rise

By Dan Eggen
Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, September 25, 2007; Page A07



Violent crime in the United States rose more than previously believed in 2006, continuing the most significant increase in more than a decade, according to an FBI report released yesterday.
The FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program found that robberies surged by 7.2 percent and homicides rose 1.8 percent from 2005 to 2006. Violent crime overall rose 1.9 percent, substantially more than an increase of 1.3 percent estimated in a preliminary FBI report in June...............
In 2006, for example, an estimated 1,417,000 violent crimes were committed across the country. That was a sharp rise from the 1,360,000 crimes reported in 2004 and approaches the estimated 1,425,000-mark reached in 2002.

Violent crime rates on the rise nationwide

FBI statistics show murders in the U.S. jumped 4.8 percent last year

ATLANTA - In Phoenix, they're terrorized by not one but two serial killers. In Boston, homicides are at a 10-year high. And with 14 murders since July 1, the nation's capital has declared a crime emergency. The latest preliminary FBI statistics show murders in the U.S. jumped 4.8 percent last year while overall violent crime was up 2.5 percent.
And in many communities the upsurge is attributed to juveniles........
